People of Light

Let there be no sexual immorality, impurity, or greed among you.  Such sins have no place among God's people.  Don't be fooled by those who try to excuse these sins, for the anger of God will fall on all who disobey Him.  Don't participate in the things these people do.  For once you were full of darkness, but now you have light from the Lord.  So live as people of light!  For this light with in you produces only what is good and right and true.------Ephesians 5: 3, 6-9

How can we live in such a WICKED and PERVERTED world where WRONG is presented as RIGHT and RIGHT is presented as WRONG?

The Apostle Paul gives us CLEAR and CONCISE directions as HOW we should live our lives at this point in time and place.  He says that we are NOT to take ANY part in sexual immorality, impurity, or greed, because such sins have NO place in the lives of God's people.

We are NOT to be FOOLED by the excuses that are used to CONDONE these acts because the ANGER of the RIGHTEOUS GOD will fall on ALL who are DISOBEDIENT to Him by practicing these sins. And I don't know about you, but I'm smart enough to know that I SURE don't wan God's ANGER to fall on me!!

Before we came to the Father, we lived in darkness, the scripture says we were FULL of darkness, BUT when we came to the Lord Jesus Christ with a REPENTANT HEART we became PEOPLE OF LIGHT, because we LIVE in the LIGHT and we are now FULL of the LIGHT that produces ONLY what is GOOD, and RIGHT, and TRUE.

So according to the Apostle Paul we SHOULD live as people of LIGHT, being OBEDIENT to God and SEEKING to bring His GOOD PLEASURE upon us INSTEAD of His ANGER.

If you are FULL of DARKNESS because you are practicing these sins you can CHANGE the DARKNESS to LIGHT BY:  CONFESSING your sins to God and asking for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART that Jesus died for YOU and is ALIVE, in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION.  Do it NOW, while you STILL can.  He's waiting!!!
